Since 1908, our Castle on the Coast has long been the city’s social centrepiece from royal visits and black-tie galas to elaborate meetings and large conventions. Although the gatherings of today may look a bit different than they did in the years past, our team is ready and excited to welcome you and your guests.
Adorned with crystal chandeliers and steeped in more than a century of history, the multi-functional and versatile Crystal Ballroom is ideal for large meetings, conferences, receptions, formal black-tie galas, celebrations and weddings alike.
Stately and cultured, the 1900s-era Library Room channels a baronial castle. Gather family and friends, or your executive team to host a special event or meeting in this truly extraordinary and historic room.
